I just received my copy of Networked Publics from MIT Press, the product of a year-long research project I participated in during 2005-2006 at USC's Annenberg Center for Communication. The book explores changes facilitated by digital tools. Chapters center on place, politics, culture, infrastructure. I edited and coauthored the chapter entitled Networked Public Culture. Thanks to Kazys Varnelis for patiently pulling the book together. A few of the chapters are available at the Networked Publics site.
